The Institute of Economic Studies of the Faculty of Social Sciences at Charles University (IES) and Deloitte regularly grant the Deloitte Outstanding Thesis Award (DOT Award) to the best Bachelor’s and Master’s Theses defended at IES.
For 2021, the following theses have been nominated by the IES examination committees and are considered for the award:
- Bc. Petr Čala
Do Money Rewards Motivate People? A Meta-Analysis
- Bc. Katarína Gömöryová
Payoff of having children - Do elderly parents of more children live in a nursing home less often?

- Mgr. Marie Ptáčníková, MSc:

- Mgr. Lukáš Janásek:

The DOT Award was established in 2018 thanks to the long-term partnership between IES and Deloitte, which has been in place since 2014. Examination committees nominate approximately top 10% of the best graduate theses for nomination. Later, the program directors decide on the nominations based on the IES thesis grading criteria. The winners are finally selected by Deloitte representatives.
This year's award ceremony will take place at the end of August in Prague. On this occasion, the 2020 award winners will also receive the prize, as due to the epidemiological situation, they have so far only been announced online.
Theses that are to be defended in September 2021 will be included in the nominations for spring 2022.
We would like to thank all nominees for the exceptional effort they have put into selecting their topic and the quality of their graduate theses.
